As part of the research for astrological diairies, I developed a system of Key Words and Symbols for each seasonal marker.
My research into Stonehenge revealed that it was an ancientcalendar, marking both the sun's yearly cycle and the lesser known moon's monthly cycle. Both calculated astronomically and developed astrologically down through the ages. The Moon cycles vary by about two weeks from year to year and this explains why there is such controversy in pagan communities about the dates for the Moon Seasonal Markers. Some use the much later Roman calendars to determine dates, but I found the ancient system quite satisfactory when using astrology/astronomy, both systems contemporary with the ancient standing stones. The sun cycles follow the solstice and equinox dates, while the Moon cycles can be plotted at their different dates from year to year. You will find the Moon cycles are related to the Scorpio/Taurus axis, the most fertile, fruitful axis of them all, supporting the theory that stone circles were used for agricultural ceremonies to draw down energy for the community to enhance the fertility of the land.
